A wonderful sauce for enchiladas, or any other mexican dish calling for a red sauce. Can be made spicy or not with the addition of extra chili powder and/or hot or mild taco sauce. A thicker sauce than your usual enchilada sauce.

This sauce is delicious! I believe the recipe calls for 6oz can of tomato sauce, but I used tomato paste. I am sure that it is just an oversight because it turned out exactly as it should. The flavor is just amazing. I have made it a couple of times. I have made it spicy or not, and even put it in my crockpot to "blend" the flavors. A must try!
